Looking for a Suitable Match

Chessed Ve'Emet has a professional, comprehensive and caring Shidduch service. We work with Jews looking to get married both for first time and second marriages. We work with all Hashkafot that are authentic Torah. Age wise we work with early 20's right through to 70's.

We recently had a phone call from one of the lovely ladies in her 50's to find out if we had someone suitable for her. We'd really love to help her get married hence asked her permission to post a brief outline.

If you know any men from 52 years – 60 years old who are intelligent, learned in Torah but cool, living in Israel or prepared to live here. The man must be financially secure. Hashkafa should preferably be Chabakook. He must be interested in marrying a widow in her 50's who has children from a previous marriage.

She is a friendly, fun, caring person, easy to talk to with many interests.

If you know any Jewish men who suit this description, please have them be in touch with Chessed Ve'Emet to come for an interview to find out if you are a suitable match. 

We do have other women in this age range, too.

We look forward to hearing form you

The Benefit of Learning Torah

I was learning a little from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of our Fathers) and reminded of some beautiful and powerful thoughts. Pirkei Avot is a section from Mishnah that contains a selection of moral teachings from our sages of 2000 years ago.

In Pirkei Avot 6: 9 we learn of a powerful exchange that took place between a rabbi and a certain man. 
"Rabbi Yose ben Krisma said: 'Once, I was walking along the road when a man came up to me. He greeted me and I returned the greeting. He said to me, 'Rabbi, from what place are you?' 

I said to him, 'I am from a great city of scholars and sages.' 

He said to me, 'Rabbi, would you be willing to live with us, in our place? I would give you thousands upon thousands of golden dinars, precious stones and pearls.'

I replied, 'Even if you were to give me all the silver and gold, precious stones and pearls in the world, I would dwell nowhere but in a place of Torah.' And so it is written in the book of Psalms by David, King of Israel: 'I prefer Torah of Your mouth above thousands in gold and silver' (Psalms 119:72). Further, when a man departs from this world, neither silver, nor gold, nor precious stones, nor pearls escort him, but only Torah study and good deeds, as it is said: 'When you walk it shall guide you, when you lie down, it shall guard you; and when you awake, it shall speak on your behalf' (Proverbs 6:22) 'When you walk, it shall guide you' - refers to this world; 'when you lie down, it shall guard you' - refers to when you are in the grave; 'and when you awake' it shall speak on your behalf' - in the World to Come. And it says:' mine is the silver, and Mine is the gold, says Hashem (G-d), Master of Legions (Chaggai 2:8)" (translation mostly with assistance of Artscroll's edition of Pirkei Avot)

The most precious possession we can acquire in this world is Torah learning and acts of goodness and kindness.  Don't wait until it is too late to try to learn what you should have been learning all your life. Begin your learning today. Contact us at Chessed Ve'Emet. We have learning opportunities for various different levels of Torah learning. 

If you are really busy and not yet sure how to make the time to learn, not to worry, you can participate by supporting Torah. Help us to develop our Torah outreach further and make a contribution and share the link. Everyone stands to gain.

Learning Torah Online

What are your thoughts of learning Torah?

More and more, people verbalize the problems of today. The modern lifestyle and how life has in so many ways lost meaning. What is the purpose? What is the point?

There are answers, and the answers to ALL your questions lie in the Torah. Some enjoy going to a group Shiur (lesson) but for some who live in areas far from a Synagogue or, who for various reasons need to learn online from the comfort of their own home, another option is necessary.

Chessed Ve'Emet uses the latest options to reach out to all. Torah teaching is possible via Skype with webcam, gmail with webcam, google hangout or even various virtual classrooms. We'd like to get the word out to many more Jews and non-Jews who need to learn the wealth of wisdom that Torah has to offer.

Please join us in our current campaign. If you would like to sign up for online Torah learning, you are welcome to do so by emailing us or visiting our website and being in touch via the contact page.
